Episode 2: B is for Butt Stuff Why do straight women engage in anal intercourse?

 

CORRECTION: At the end of the video, Rob and Angel (1:31:00) answer a listener question about anal fluids and risk. Rob says that anal sex is 400x riskier than vaginal sex for HIV transmission, but said he thought he was misremembering that statistic. So, we looked it up. He was misremembering. According to a Canadian AIDS Treatment Information Exchange (CATIE) review of several HIV meta-analyses, risk of HIV transmission is up to 18x higher from receptive anal sex than from receptive vaginal sex.

https://www.catie.ca/en/pif/summer-2012/putting-number-it-risk-exposure-hiv

 

Where did that first, high number come from?

Studies have shown that viral loads are up to 500% higher in rectal secretions (the mucous membrane fluid near the rectum) than in blood and up to 2500% higher than in semen! 

Should I be worried about HIV rectal secretions?  https://www.hivplusmag.com/sex-dating/2017/1/04/should-i-be-worried-about-hiv-rectal-secretions

Zuckerman, R. A., Whittington, W. L., Celum, C. L., Collis, T. K., Lucchetti, A. J., Sanchez, J. L., ... & Coombs, R. W. (2004).

About “Sex from A to Z”:

"Sex from A to Z" is a sex science podcast discussing in plain language the actual studies that inform how sex therapists, sex researchers, sex educators, and medical professionals make decisions about sexual health and wellness.  On each episode we take a deep dive into a different piece of peer-reviewed literature, break it down and explore the social, scientific, and personal implications. This is a podcast for anyone interested in understanding the psychological, medical, and other scientific research behind sexual issues that impact all of us.

“Sex from A to Z” is hosted by Angel Russell and Dr. Robert Zeglin, and produced by Steven Russell. Art for the podcast was created by Angel Russell. We will post links to all the articles we discuss and additional resources for exploring each topic. You can watch on YouTube or listen anywhere you find your favorite podcasts.
